Sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get the job done.

Sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get the job done.

Franz Jakob owns a barbershop in Northern Canada.
And this is him on the floor cutting Wyatt Lafrenier’s hair.
Wyatt is 6 years-old and has autism.

Franz says:
My barbershop is located in an old mining town called Rouyn-Noranda.

I opened here because there were no other barbershops, only hair salons, which is something completely different.
Wyatt showed up with his mother during the first week I was open.

He was my first child who had special needs.
I figured out how to work with him by getting down to his level.
These moments are very special for me.

We usually start by having a candy together and we walk around the shop looking at everything on the walls.
The shop is packed with gifts from clients.
We can also put some music during the haircut.

I'm never typically driving the haircut, I simply follow the lead of the child.
It takes me more than an hour to finish with a special needs child.

It is worth every minute.

�Franz Jakob

Franz also gives haircuts to people who are terminally ill.
He says:

"When you shave someone who is probably going to die within 48 hours … it's indescribable.
Everyone is crying, it's really something.
I'm really proud to be doing all this.''
